Province steps up mussel interception, but non-government sector pays the bill

April 6, 2016 – Osoyoos Times

The B.C. government has stepped up its program to intercept invasive zebra and quagga mussels entering the province with eight permanent mandatory inspection stations near the Alberta and U.S. borders.

The station serving the Osoyoos border crossing, however, will be based in Penticton.

The announcement of the stepped-up program won support from the Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB), which has been calling for permanent inspection stations since 2012.
